Throughout our Epic implementation, we will be guided by the following principles:

  • We will standardize on best demonstrated practices as supported by the Foundation System
  • Decisions are made for the organization, not individual facilities or practices.
  • We will not go back and revisit decisions once they have been made.
  • We will have an emphasis on integration throughout the continuum of care.
  • We will concentrate on understanding the relationship between the processes we implement and improvements in quality, cost, outcomes and patient satisfaction.
  • We will look to increase safety through better visibility of clinical data.
  • We will emphasize quality improvement through objective analytics available in the system.
  • We will empower our patients through enabling their access to medical information in a timely manner.
  • We will look to making more efficient use of our clinician time through more integration of clinical processes.
  • There will be operational engagement to drive the success of this project.
  • We will focus on benefits realization and elements or functions contained within Epic that will not be duplicated with other systems.
  • We will look for continuous quality improvement of the Epic system through optimization, post-live.
  • We will trust the process.
